COPD Diagnosis Project

In this article Angela Wixey discusses a local programme of work that was established to unravel the risk factors associated with under- and over- diagnosis of COPD.   The service was operated by a Respiratory Nurse Specialist (RNS) credited by the Association of Respiratory Technology and Physiology (ARTP) in spirometry who examined 375 patients in five practices across the county over 9 months.
